Fall Inspiration with Dorlene!

Dorlene here to show off the Fall decoration I made using an assortment of Quick Quotes patterned papers and PowderPuff Chalk Inks and Halloween/Fall themed rubber stamps.

I purchased this pumpkin wood base from our local dollar store knowing that I was going to completely re-purpose it.

The first thing I did was make a pattern using newsprint of the inner pumpkin. Then I cut it into three pieces to use as a cutting guide. Once the papers were cut, I used an assortment of stamps and PowderPuff Chalk Inks to create a collaged background before adhering the pieces to the pumpkin base.

For a finished look, I inked around both sides of the pumpkin edge with Kokomo PowderPuff Chalk Ink.

I used my cricut to cut out leaves and added burlap bows to adorn them and complete the project.
Hand lettering for the sentiment...

One side a little more traditional "orange" celebrating Fall and the other side a "blue/teal" pumpkin to celebrate Halloween.

Halloween Treat Bag by Louise!

Hello  Quick Quotes readers! Louise here with a little Halloween treat bag that I made using the Spring Showers Paper Pack, acrylic stamps, and PowderPuff Chalk Inks.

I don't have a cutting die for a little bag so I just made my own. I used generic white cardstock and added the patterned papers to the sides that show. 
  • Since I didn't need a specific size, I decided it was faster to approximate than to measure. 
  • I scored the shape of the bottom onto my cardstock: 2 horizontal scores and 2 vertical scores. 
  • I then hand-cut the around the scored lines to make the shape in the photo below with flaps for the adhesive.  
  • Since all the pieces that stick out are the same length (about 3"), this will fold perfectly into a little bag.

  • Next I measured the four rectangular faces and cut patterned papers to fit.
  • I used Spring Showers 101 edged with PowderPuff Chalk Ink in Island Orange for the small faces and Spring Showers 102 edged with PowderPuff Chalk Ink in Midnight Confession for the larger faces. 

  • I used acrylic stamps with PowderPuff Chalk Ink in Midnight Confession to create these designs for the larger faces:

  • I adhered the patterned paper to the cardstock bag and added extra adhesive to the flaps.

Finally I closed up the bag, punched a whole in each of the small sides and added a twine handle.

Halloween is only 2 weeks away! I hope I have inspired you to create some quick and easy treat bags.

October Club Q with Alicia!

Hello, Alicia sharing my take on this month's Club Q. I loved all the oranges, reds and gold in this month's kit. I found the perfect pictures for the title from a hike in my local park.
To create this layout, I followed these steps:
  1. Open kit and punch out die cuts
  2. Color white die cuts with a ink, I choose Desert Sun PowderPuff Chalking Ink
  3. Ink edges of remaining die cuts
  4. Adhere layers together
  5. Arrange die cuts and photos on 12x2 designer paper
  6. After finalizing design, adhere all pieces

The second page uses the negative of a die cut page. I had several photos of this fun trek to fill most of the squares. In the spare squares I filled with paper and die cut leaves in the kit.
Here is a close up of the die cuts. I inked the yellow leaf with Desert Sun.

With the leftovers I created a card. While I chose to use the richer side of the paper on the layout. I picked the softer side for the background of this card. Here are the steps I took.
  1. Ink the negative from a leaf die cut
  2. Layer it on a leftover square
  3. Wrap a bit of ribbon around and used pop dots to lift off the card
  4. Stamp the sentiment in Mango Mai Tai on leftover white chipboard
  5. Layer pieces on top of two layers of coordinating designer paper
  6. Layer on folder white card stock in size A2

October Club Q with June!

Hello Quick Quotes fans, June here today hosting the blog!

WOW! Check out this month's Club Q, the papers and colors are gorgeous!!! Plus all the chipboard pieces, brads and ribbon are included. Definitely one of my favorite releases! Here is another fun idea you can create with the October Page Layouts Club Q kit.

This kit is designed with a fall theme, but you can use it year round. As I LOVE these papers, I wanted to have them pop, so I added dark brown cardstock from my stash. Here is the step-by-step:
  • Trim orange pattern paper to 11.5" x 11.5", distress edges and ink with Mahogany PowderPuff Chalking Ink, and mat on brown cardstock.
  • Trim flower pattern paper to 9.25" x  10.5", distress edges and ink with Mahogany PowderPuff Chalking Ink, and mat on brown cardstock.
  • Edge pre-cut red pattern paper with Mahogany PowderPuff Chalking Ink, and mat on brown cardstock.
  • Ink blend a pattern onto the chipboard title with a stencil using Cool Gray PowderPuff Chalking Ink. (I used a brick stencil to mimic the stone structure in the photo.)
  • Add splatters using Mahogany PowderPuff Chalking Ink mixed with water.
  • Adhere photos, title, ribbon and red brads
  • Color chipboard leaves with Cactus, Barn Board and Orange Slice PowderPuff Chalking Inks and die cut branches for the inside paper piece of the green frame. Then adhere.
  • Edge pre-cut green frame with Mahogany PowderPuff Chalking Ink, add journaling and orange brads. Tuck behind photo.

Precious Memories with Rebecca

Happy Fall, Y'all! It's Rebecca hosting the blog post today.

Fall memories in Indiana for me always include raking a pile of leaves and jumping in them. One fall day, I was lucky to catch my son and his dog, Lily, frolicking in the pile. This is such a special photo because Lily died 2 years ago at age ten.
"Precious Memories"
I die cut my frames and picture.

Die cut leaves with different colors of card stock. Ink them with PowderPuff Chalk Ink with several colors.

  • I cut the brick paper and adhered it roughly an inch and a half from the bottom
  • I cut the dark green paper at 1/4 inch by 12 and adhered it flush to the edge of the brick paper
  • Next, I add a 3/4 inch strip of the light blue paper under the dark green strip at the bottom

  • I cut a doily in half a placed as shown
  • Matted the vellum saying onto card stock
  • Add pearl accents to the corners
  • Attach with foam tape.

Add leaves in a cascading fashion.

  • Cut apart a pearl flourish and add to the bottom right corner and the top center
  • Add glue to open sections and add prills
I hope your fall season is full of memories to scrap!

Carving Pumpkins with Neva!

Hello Quick Quotes friends!  Neva here to share a memory from a few years back that features a few Halloween pumpkins!

There are several collections that feature orange, which I thought would be a good backdrop for my layout.
  • Two sheets of Secret Garden 104 with the orange flowered pattern is a great background.
  • Two sheets of Navigator 100 are trimmed to 7 1/2" x 9" and 7 1/2" x 12" and inked with Powder Puff Chalking Ink in Coal Miner.
  • The background is outlined with washi tape.
  • The title is die cut from black cardstock.

The two pumpkin borders are easily created using stamps and ink on Navigator 100.
  • Two sections are trimmed to 9" x 2" and 2" x 12".
  • The pumpkin images are first stamped in Coal Miner PowderPuff Chalk Ink.
  • A brush tip applicator is used to color the pumpkins with Biscotti PowderPuff Chalk on the stems and Rusty Nail on the pumpkins.  I like how this particular stamp set let me mix and match.
  • Both sections are backed with Navigator 104 trimmed to 7" x 2 5/8" and 2 5/8" x 12". 
  • All the sections are edged in Coal Miner PowderPuff Chalk Ink

This quote from Farmhouse 500 is not only orange, but is also fun to use!
  • The quote is trimmed, then inked with Coal Miner PowderPuff Chalk Ink.
  • Navigator 104 backs the quote.
  • Washi tape ribbons are created by layering washi tape on both sides of white cardstock.  
  • The "ribbons" are trimmed, folded, and adhered to the back of the sentiment.

Tractor Love with Connie!

Hi, Connie here with a scrapbook page using the Secret Garden Collection by Quick Quotes. 

The collection is full of bright and colorful paper designs, some bold and some soft. I like the combination of both in a collection.

The photos are about a 3"x 3". You can collage them on a 8" x 10" sheet of Canon Pro Platinum and print them out. I used my Canon iP8720 printer for this.

The embellishments are created using stamps and PowderPuff Chalk Ink.

  • I stamped the images, on white cardstock, 
  • Then, using a Q-tip, colored in the images with PowderPuff Chalk inks. 
  • Trim each image out and they are ready to add to your scrapbook page.

  • Layer papers in the center of your page, add the photos and then decorate with the stamped images.
  • Title your page. 
  • The letter stickers are colored with PowderPuff Chalk inks. 
  • Makes it so easy to customize for the exact color you need for your title.

Happy Monday everyone. Dorlene here to share a layout I created using the Far and Away collection.

My mom, sister and I went on a road trip to Tucson, Arizona earlier this year and I wanted to showcase the difference in the landscape between the two states...from California poppies to Arizona Saguaros...both beautiful!

The first thing I did was sort through the Far and Away papers to select a base page. Then I cut down a piece of the border strip paper to create a large bottom border. I love using these multiple border strip sheets since they give the look of multiple layers without all the cutting and extra work.

Each piece of paper was inked around the edges with either Deep Sea, Bermuda or Tropical Punch PowderPuff Chalk Inks.

The chipboard words were part of an earlier Club Q kit and fit perfectly with this layout. I inked "life" and "good" in Deep Sea and "is" with Bermuda.

This was a pretty simple layout, so to add some pizzazz, I used a splatter background stamp with Bermuda PowderPuff Chalk Ink and other travel/adventure stamps with Tropical Punch and Sandy Shore PowderPuff Chalk Ink.

It was a great trip with two of my favorite ladies!
